This past week has been a busy one. I’ve been trying to soak up Miami vibes because I’ll be in Connecticut for the summer.
My husband and I are road-tripping it back up north and have planned to make the most of our travels. We’re stopping for two nights at a beach resort in Georgia, a night in Durham, NC, a night in Baltimore, and two nights in NYC along the way.
In preparation for the upcoming travel, I got my roots touched up at IGK Salon this week and went extra blonde for summer. I think that it’s the lightest my hair has ever been and couldn’t be happier with the results.
So, I caved and ate some sweets for the first time in months.
First I’ll explain that I have an obsession with Mathew Kinney cuisine. If you didn’t know, he’s a famous raw vegan chef and he creates the most beautiful, tasty food that ever existed. Honestly, I could be a raw vegan if I had access to his food every single day. Anyhow, last Sunday I stopped by his restaurant Plnthouse at the 1 Hotel in Sobe for a green juice and was coerced into splitting the mango cheesecake. It was totally worth it. Then this past Friday night out to dinner with friends, I couldn’t help from suggesting MK’s other Miami hotspot Plant Food and Wine for dessert. I mean we were a few blocks away and let’s be real, I wanted a damn treat.
I didn’t even feel guilty about it and my stomach didn’t give me any problems, so no love lost. Will I make a habit of dessert? I certainly don’t want to. I like how I feel when I don’t eat sweets, but I will totally have them when it’s worth it.
Other than that, I don’t have anything too exciting going on, no holiday party plans over here. I’m currently sitting in bed, facemask on, an oversized t-shirt and socks, with clothes folded in piles everywhere, shit is literally everywhere and I should really finish packing.
Maybe I’ll go do that or maybe I’ll read a chapter from Material Girl Mystical World because I’m a serial procrastinator.
If you care to follow along on my adventure this week, I’ll be documenting via InstaStories. Until next time….
